Who we are

  1. We are Ian and Jean, a married couple with 3 grown up children and 2 grandchildren. This is our second home in an area we love for it's unspoilt beauty and accessibility. Because it's a second home we can be very flexible regarding exchange dates.
    We have lived and worked all over the world due to the nature of Ian's work as an engineer and are currently resident in the Lake District. This will be our first home exchange, initially we would like to exchange with a property on the Gold Coast (Australia), as our son has recently married and is living there.
